Most of the vine cultivation regions centered around the Cape of Good Hope are affected by either the Atlantic or the Indian Ocean.
That is, they combine all the beneficial elements of a coastline region, such as frequent fog and fresh sea breezes, while inland it is hot, with a mild Mediterranean climate, topography and soils that vary, and a tradition and history in viticulture that date back over 350 years.
This is one of the reasons why South Africa produces wines of unique character and distinctive complexity.
South Africa has surpassed all previous demand.
We thank you all for your participation and interest and promise all those who could not make it this time, to …. visit it again some time in the future!
